Reporting an Injury, Illness, or Near Miss

  • An injury or illness is an accident or incident that causes physical harm.
  • A near miss is an incident that has the potential to cause harm to people, property, processes or the environment.
  • You are required to report any work-related illness, injury, or near misses to your supervisor immediately. If you are seriously injured, you should seek immediate medical treatment.
